Question about 2003 Harley Davidson FLHTC Electra Glide Classic
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi Anonymous, if your instrument and or lite circut fuses keeps blowing when you turn the ignition switch on then you have a dead short in one of these circuits. Go to www.officialharleyparts.com they have a wiring driagram for a 2001 FLHTC you can download for free, it should be close enough to use on your 2003. Get out your test lite out and start checking wires, connector blocks, connector pins in the light circuit. Connect the test lite to battery positive and starting from the fuse panel work you way foward by stabing the power wires until the test lite stops lighting, and bingo you are very close to the short, repair as necessary. Good luck

SOURCE: Brake light will not come
Usually the rear brake light switch is a hydraulic switch, as opposed to the mechanical switch for the front brake light switch.
Only 3 things could be wrong with it.
1) no fluid in system/too much air in system.
If the brakes work, we can eliminate this one.
2) bad switch.
Find the switch (start at the master cylinder and follow the brake line back until you find it). Unplug the two wires and connect am ohmmeter or continuity tester across the two contacts on the switch itself. circuit should be open (no continuity). Step on brake pedal and circuit should close (register continuity/0 Ohms resistance)
Could be wiring problem. Was one of the connectors loose/unplugged when you went to perform above test?
To test wiring, before reinstalling switch connectors, jump the two wire connectors (that you removed from the switch). Even a straightened out paper clip will do. Then when the ignition is turned on, the brake lights should come on. With ignition still on, pull out jumper wire (or paper clip) and brake lights should go off.
